Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

If you make sure that the memory card is properly seated and the batteries in and the battery door properly closed, then it should power up. If still no success, it may be the micro switch that closes when the battery door is closed.

SOURCE: canon powershot a590 IS lcd screen

I had this same problem. Once I got over about 1200 pictures, the screen just turned black, and the only setting that would work where I could see the lcd screen was the easy setting. I had read somewhere that this was due to the amount of pictures the camera had "counted", even if those pictures had been downloaded and erased from the camera. So I decided to reset the camera. Go to the tools list in the menu, scroll down to "reset all", and when it prompts if you want to "reset settings to default" click ok. This worked for me, and all of my settings - sunset, landscape, etc. - parameters in any of the settings (shutter speed, lighting, etc.) those will have to be reset.

You should have let the download complete and then delete the pics from their location on your computer. You can try using a separate card reader to see if your pics show up. You can also take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk machine. Your pics may show up if you insert your card.

Buy a card reader for cheap and download photos using card reader. Remove SD card from camera and insert into card reader, then hookup card reader to computer through USB port. Try Picasa3 free software from Google to download images. Works great and all is inexpensive
